It`s time to stop providing police outrider services to the Ministers and Deputy Ministers, said Bukit Mertajam MP Steven Sim Chee Keong.
He said providing outrider services to people`s representatives is a waste of manpower of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).
“It does not matter which government, abolish the police outrider services for the people’s representatives.
“If you are rushing for time, you should leave early. Otherwise, you can solve the issue of traffic jams so that all road users can arrive at their destinations comfortably, no need for outriders,” Sim said in a post on Facebook today.
Steven Sim`s comment comes after a video of two police outriders escorting the son of Baling MP Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim in Penang has gone viral on social media since yesterday.
Meanwhile, it was reported that the police are investigating allegations that two traffic policemen have escorted a private vehicle belonging to the son of Baling MP, Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim along Jalan Bukit Gambit in Penang, Bernama reported.
Penang Chief Shuhaily Mohd Zain said a disciplinary probe also has been opened against the two policemen in the viral video.
News portal The Vibes reported that the driver in the video clip was Baling MP Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim’s son. He was seen driving in Penang escorted by two traffic policemen.
Another video clip which was posted on Instagram yesterday also shows one of the traffic policemen stopping traffic at a junction in order to allow the “escorted vehicle” to pass first.
